This temple dates to the 13th century. Isn’t that amazing to watch stand it firm after so many years? The temple has outer surroundings of stones. But the interior is made of teak wood. The temple has swayambhu Shivalinga which means no one built it (no one knows how it appeared). This fact is enough for a visit. The caretakers and pujaris have looked after the temple in an incredible way by maintaining its ethnicity.
